Before we bought a house, we were champion renters. We lived in a studio, a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, and a house —all without taking on the title of owners. During those years, I experimented with lots of ways to customize our home without altering the bland beige, sad shag, and lame laminate inside — not to mention the outside space when we had it. I'm a crafty DIYer, so I was able to work some non-permanent magic. But, man oh man, do I wish some of these temporary outdoor flooring options were available back in my rental days.
